A new start for a former first-round draft pick.

The Chicago Cubs have agreed to a one-year deal worth $1.5 million with former New York Yankees outfielder Clint Frazier pending a physical, according to multiple reports on Tuesday.

The deal includes $1 million in performance incentives.

Frazier is just 27-years old and finally healthy after a very disappointing 2021 season where he batted .186 and had some vertigo issues.

He still has one minor-league option available and will be under club control through the 2024 season. The Yankees released him last week.

This is a solid move because it's low risk, and he is still a very promising player if he gets some playing time platooning in the corner outfielder spots in 2022.

For his career, he has hit .239 with 29 homers and 97 RBIs.

He was the fifth overall pick in the 2013 MLB draft.
